This gorgeous game marks a new standard in digitized, computer-rendered games. If only other CD-base game systems could live up to 7th Guest, then every gamer would be able to experience the joy of a well-conceived, beautifully created game. For now, CD-i owners lucked out.

Interface
Vaskamansäja? Man kan egentligen inte göra annat än hålla tyst och stillsamt gråta inom sig av lycka. Briljant räcker inte. Ultraschysst räcker inte. Megasuperhäftigtgigacool räcker nästan, men inte riktigt. Om ni tänker er ordet "BRA" skrivet med åttiofem meter höga bokstäver av rosa frigolit kantat med lagerkransar, så kanske ni får en svag aning om hur det ligger till. Jag kan inte rå för att jag har våta drömmar om "The 7th Guest" kombinerat med en 250-tums TV och samma ljudanläggningar som Guns 'n' Roses använder. Jag kan inte det. Heders. Dessutom är det en välgjord story. Man skulle i det här läget kunna säga att det är ett ganska bra spel. Och så är det.

7th Guest zeigt beeindruckend die Stärken des CD-is. Bombenstimmung, super Soundtrack und eine Grafikkulisse die anno 1994 absolut einzigartig auf Konsolen war, wenn auch nur vorberechnet - dank DVC Karte auch in voller PAL Auflösung und bei 16,7 Mio. Farben. Wer auf Grafikadventures steht und auch eine schöne und spannende Story zu schätzen weiß, kommt an 7th Guest nicht vorbei. Wenn es auch nicht viele gute Spiele auf dem CD-i gibt, so ist 7th Guest neben Burn Cycle sicher ein Kaufgrund für Philips gescheiterte Multimedia-Schleuder.

The only complaint you may have against it, as with most games of this genre, is the lack of replay. While many of the puzzles do offer multiple ways to solve them, the story never changes. But, the story is so involving, you may find yourself just jumping right back in again right after solving it.

Electronic Gaming Monthly (EGM)
Wow! If you've never heard of 7th Guest before, you're in for a shock. The graphics are simply mind-blowing with beautifully rendered scenes of the Stauff mansion. While simply walking around and playing puzzles at various points seems boring, just fire this puppy up and you'll be hooked. The music adds a creepy side to the game so I wouldn't suggest playing with the lights off. A great game with no real replay value.

Power Unlimited
Horror-thriller met schitterende computergraphics, full-motion videobeelden en gesproken woord / muziek in hifi-stereo. Het verhaal is behoorlijkeng en de puzzels razend moeilijk. De nadruk ligt dan ook meer op denkwerk dan op actie.

Le plus beau jeu actuellement sur CD-I/FMV. A éviter uniquement si le mot "casse-tête" vous donne la nausée.

The Video Game Critic
Much like the early Alone in the Dark games, the developers failed to understand that bright, clean, colorful rooms just aren't very scary. Even the "surprise" animated clips that are supposed to be intense fall flat. 7th Guest is a novel concept, but despite its good looks, there's not much of a game here.
